Cyber Armor Question

What is the difference between Plated Armor, and Tech Armor - aside from the encumbrance?

I'm a sentinel, and I assume both would work for the Charge ability, just one makes you slower in general?

Good job on Sentinel ;) Awesome ain't it?

Anyway, I use Tech. It might just be looks, not sure.

Yea I love it. My Charge Cooldown gets bugged sometimes but it's no biggie. I'm using Plate Armor, and didnt even know about the tech armor until I saw it today in the BM. Hoping for some insight :)

There are only three different Armor Types: Agent Armor, Kevlar Armor, and Cyber Armor. Variation outside of this is purely there so you can visually customize your character the way you want. Plated Armor and Tech Armor are just two forms of Cyber Armor.

Thank you very much for the clarification. Perhaps the encumbrance rating for each in the guide is a typo?

Hmm, I'm not seeing a typo. Feel free to link it here and I'll correct it quick.

Agent Armor has an encumbrance of 5, Kevlar Armor is 10, and Cyber Armor is 20.

Nope you're right they are totally the same. That's what I got for starting the app right when I woke up :D Thanks Tyler!
